natasha lau mainland china

Natasha Lau wasn’t your average child. Rather than watch cartoons or play games with her friends, she spent her girlhood flicking through fashion magazines, trying on dresses and accompanying her mother to the world’s glossiest catwalk shows. And the intense love of clothing she developed has now paid off in the form of a dazzling career in the fashion industry. The Instagram star has collaborated on a number of collections and walked for some of the biggest brands of China and Europe. Natasha splits her time between Shanghai, where she works as a model and stylist, and New York, where she is studying at art school Parsons. “I prefer Shanghai somehow. I’m more European in my style. I like quite a simple and chilled life.” Along with all the designers who helped…

cool as ice

Now there’s an exotic new way to behold the Northern Lights. Hot on the heels of the success of its famous sister, Treehouse, comes Arctic Bath, a hotel and spa that floats freely on the Lule River in Harads, Swedish Lapland, just 50 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle. The spa offers an array of water activities and spa treatments—as well as a lounge, shop and restaurant—but its biggest attractions are the ice-cold bath at its centre and the twinkling lights above. The design by Bertil Harström and Johan Kauppi pays homage to the country’s forest economy, resembling a dam of logs to be floated to a mill downriver. During the summer the spa-hotel floats, while in the winter it will be frozen in place. The hotel features six cabins…

Smooth Sailing When the sea gets rough, eat saltines to settle your stomach, or so the old salts say. Better still, step aboard the Foiler from Enata Marine, a 9.5-metre hydrofoil that cuts through choppy water by skimming 1.5 metres above it at 40 knots (74km/h). This flying superyacht is anchored by four foils that keep her extremely stable and resistant to wave interference. Propulsion comes from two 320HP BMW engines hooked up to two generators and two electric motors. At cruising speed, the vessel’s 300-litre fuel tank gives her a range of 240 kilometres. The retractable foils are strong enough to support the weight of eight passengers in the boat as she flies above the water’s surface. With her sleek style and cutting-edge hull design, you don’t need to be…

ming ho-tang hongkong

She’s just flown in from a truffle-hunting trip in Italy and is about to head off to some bucket-list destinations, including Brazil and Bora Bora. So what is Ming Ho-Tang looking forward to most? “Six days in Antarctica where there’s no Wi-Fi so no one can reach me.” That should be no surprise. A player in the finance industry, having worked at HSBC Private Equity Management, Ming is now the director of corporate development at Li & Fung—a role she executes with aplomb in 5-inch Christian Louboutin stilettos, no less—and her phone is constantly abuzz. Given that her wardrobe spans three rooms of her home and she boasts a range of covetable collectibles, from rare Judith Leiber clutches to a Chanel handbag signed by Karl Lagerfeld, it’s surprising she didn’t consider a…

TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD Returned to the Premier’s Office The revered statesman’s return to politics is an inspiring story, marked with emotional undertones of determination, grit and redemption. After achieving victory during the historical May 9th elections with his allies from the Alliance of Hope, former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad returned to public office to become our nation’s seventh Prime Minister. The world’s oldest democratically-elected country leader has since worked tirelessly with his new cabinet of ministers to answer the nation’s call for reform and for a better, more progressive Malaysia.
